Mat Alano-Martin comes to comedy from the world of rock and roll, where he spent 10 years touring North America as a member of several unknown bands and as a tour manager for much more successful, well known bands. With a comedic style that bridges the social and political views of his indie-rock background with the attitude and sensibilities of his rural and blue collar youth, Alano-Martin has appeared at comedy clubs, theaters, punk rock dives, redneck roadhouses, casinos, colleges, living rooms and everywhere in between.
Alano-Martin’s debut album “Profiled as Such” can be heard on the Sirius/XM Raw Dog comedy channel and he has appeared on the nationally syndicated The Bob & Tom Show as well as Laughs on Fox. He has worked with such notable acts as Patton Oswalt, Tig Notaro and Marc Maron and has performed at 20 different festivals across the country and abroad.
He is also the co-founder of the Limestone Comedy Festival and the host of the Strangers On This Road podcast, although he hasn’t put up a new episode in a few years so maybe former host is a better title. His jokes have also been used for the Frank and Funny greeting card line.
